Following the 50-minute film, there will be a buffet of snacks/refreshments and letter-writing stations set up where attendees can write messages to the prime minister expressing why Canada should protect more natural areas.

The messages will be collected by Nature Canada as part of their cross-country bus tour and delivered to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the UN Convention of Biodiversity (Nature COP) on Dec. 6.

A link to register for the event can be found on the “UFV’s Wildlife Protection Club” on Facebook.
